It initially looks like an American toad because there are few warts per spot, however they tend to have a ridge behind their eye and often a spur connecting it to parotid gland, which I can't see in this picture. Lack of that would indicate a Fowler's toad or a hybrid. Fowler's and American toads readily hybridize.

Like I said, I'm not 100% sure -- please check out the wiki link!

Which post were you thinking was a green tree frog? I want to take another look as well. Thanks

I'm not an expert, but I don't think this is a green tree frog... Your earlier post looks like a green tree frog, but this guy is possibly an American toad?
